Canadian acoustic-fusion group The Duhks created quite a stir when their self-titled CD was released on Sugar Hill Records earlier this year. The band has been touring extensively since that time, and new fans have been regularly frustrated by the fact that their debut recording, Your Daughters & Your Sons was not available in the US. It was released in Canada in limited distribution in 2002 and helped attract the ears of such acoustic music notables as B???la Fleck, who produced their Sugar Hill CD, but was hard to come by in the States.
Sugar Hill is now releasing Your Daughters & Your Sons on CD, and it will ship on January 24, 2006. Sugar Hill describes the re-release this way:
The material focuses more on Celtic and Old-Time traditions but does show the first twinklings of their song-molding process, which they refer to now as Duhk-ification. The album features several tunes that have been crowd favorites at the band’s electric live shows, such as Leatherwing Bat, Annabel and Rock of Ages. Fan response to these songs and others made it clear to Sugar Hill that there is a demand for “YD&YS” among Duhks fans new and old.
There are no audio samples on the Sugar Hill site, but the band has them on theirs.
